Can the nib from the first gen Pencil be used for the second gen Pencil?
Yes you can. It’s the same unscrew and screw on nip but the underlying tech is dfferent in terms of pairing and charging.

Apple Pencil Tips - 4 pack

https://store.apple.com/sg/xc/product/MLUN2FE/A
Apple sells the tips since Gen 1 and if you look at the Q/A it is cross compatible plus I’ve both version Pencil 1 and 2. The ones in the Gen 1 box can be used for Gen 2

eBay also has replacement Apple Pencil tips, but significantly cheaper than Apple's price.

Try to be careful with third party tips cos it might scratch the surface of the display more easily.

Bought a usb A to usb c adapter, thinking of using the original UsbC cable and this adapter to charge the iPad Pro 12.9”.
But don’t work.
Went to challenger and tried another 2 usb a to usb c cable of brand Hoco and cannot charge at all.
Then Customer service recommended Mazer(sg designed)
Able to charge the iPad Pro.

Had the same issue as you. Bought an Omar's cable but couldn't charge the iPad. Unfortunately for me I ripped up the box so couldn't do a change.

U face the same issue too?! Wonder how they pass the quality check.
Quite shocked that the cables donít work.
So for the rest, better test the cable on the spot so that u donít need to make another trip back.

I think it's a known issue with usb-c. I watched a video where they say that usb-c is the name of the shape of the connector. But the connection/circuit inside is varying. That's when you will get issues like cheap cables unable to charge ipad

I have Apple Pencil 1 and 2. The tips are interchangeable. They have same shape, size and screw thread.

Only difference is Pencil 2 tip is matte surface and Pencil 1 has slight gloss.

Bros anyone has problems connecting “older” Bluetooth devices to the new iPad Pro?

I have a Logitech R500 remote presenter that worked with the iPad Pro 10.5 (Bluetooth 4.2) but it cannot pair with the new iPad Pro 11...

Anyone has experience ?
